Episode 48: Pixar – A Retrospective

Episode 48 - Pixar Retrospective2As Inside/ Out takes the film world by storm, the chicks travel 20 years back in time and review Toy Story, followed by all other feature films Pixar has produced so far. We find out that some films are more Pixar than others and some are definitely more memorable than others (or maybe some of us just should have done some more re-watching). Sofia finds out that she is actually a Pixar fan while Mette fangirls about Finding Nemo and Nik speaks of her least secret Pixar fantasy (this podcast also serves as her application to work at the Pixar cafeteria).
We apologize for the length and also the lateness of this episode.

(Note: We had some technical difficulties with the recording of this episode so it might not be very smooth to listen to but we hope our enthusiasm for the director and his work makes up for it. Thank you for bearing with us.)
